Wednesday 20th March marks World Oral Health Day and here at Superior Smiles we believe prevention is better than a cure.
Many people do not understand the impact that bad oral health has on the rest of their body and general well-being.
Some of the ways you can take care of your oral health at home include regular brushing and flossing, eating a healthy and low sugar diet, avoiding the use of tobacco, limiting alcohol consumption and having regular dental check-ups.
The two most common types of oral disease are tooth decay and gum disease. These can be easily prevented with an effective oral care routine which includes, brushing for 2 minutes twice a day and regular flossing. It is important to remember that good oral health is not just relevant today but should be adapted as part of a lifestyle change and developing these habits from an early age can positively impact on your long-term health and well-being.
For further advice or if you have any concerns, you can contact our friendly team or even arrange a visit with our hygienist to find out how you could improve your oral care routine.
